We live in a day and age with options, and the same goes for schools. From private to public to Christian to charter to homeschooling, parents and students have serious decisions to make from the moment a child enters preschool. Sometimes it can help to boil it down to the most basic question, so in today’s blog we’re looking at just that: what is the purpose of education?
Choosing a high school can be a daunting task, and every student and family has different criteria they’re looking for in academics, teachers, student life, and extracurricular activities. We interviewed a few of LuHi’s dedicated students to find out how they chose to be a Lion, and if their expectations for a great school have been met in LuHi.
Perspective families! Mark you calendars for these admissions specific dates. We'd love for you to come in and learn more about LuHi!
You are no longer a middle schooler (or are the parent of a freshly minted...um...freshman). Congratulations! You should definitely be proud of yourself. It’s taken a while to get here, and now there’s four more years looming large ahead of you. It’s a bigger, broader experience waiting for students in high school, with challenges both old and new. Just switching over from middle school to high school expectations and performance standards can be a big shift.
High school is just around the corner. One more summer, and 8th graders will see a big transition in their educational journey, becoming freshmen as they graduate from middle school. Are your 8th-grade students excited for this change? Nervous? Apathetic?
Life is full of transitions. Every year brings new changes that can alter your carefully plotted schedules and plans. When will things ever be normal and predictable for a while? Now, before you even realized, high school has sneaked up on you, and you’re facing another big shift in the status quo.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could do enough research to guarantee that your student will have the perfect educational fit and excel at a private school you’re enrolling them in? The reality is, despite every precaution and preparation, it’s tough to find a private school that will hit 100% with your student in every single area of life and educational goals.
Time flies, and for prospective students (and especially their parents) the time to choose a high school can come quickly. Once the school year starts and you really ramp up your search and exploration of potential high schools for your child, your calendar is sure to fill up quickly.
Availability of college-level coursework is a priority for many parents researching high schools for their children. Although the various types of courses seem alike at first, there are differences that may make certain courses seem more or less appealing to you or your child. Of particular interest to many students and families as they research high schools are AP and dual credit courses.
Diligent parents researching secondary education choices for their children may be confused by the range of choices available across the Denver area. While the choice between a public and a private school may seem somewhat straightforward, it gets a bit muddier when comparing charter schools to private schools?
